Dr. Frank’s Riesling gets mag’s highest mark

Dr. Frank’s 2006 Dry Riesling received a 92 rating in Wine & Spirits Magazine. This is the highest rating the winery has ever received! This highly decorated wine has already won 9 Gold Medals and two Best of Class Awards. The 92 rating is truly a testament to the continuous quality of Dr. Frank’s Wines.This Dry Riesling, presenting a green gold hue, displays the traditional qualities of Dr. Frank’s Riesling: crisp acidity, a pronounced mineral character and layers of fruit aromas. Descriptors include honeysuckle, apple, pear, quince and a lot of minerality resulting from the slate terroir of the vineyard. The ripeness of the grapes resulted in a great texture with a lingering fruity aftertaste.Frederick Frank, third generation president of the winery comments, “The Dr. Frank Dry Riesling is a true champion for the Finger Lakes, receiving the highest rating for our winery and region. This will convince wine connoisseurs around the country that the Finger Lakes is the best Riesling region in the U.S.”Located on Keuka Lake a few miles north of Hammondsport, Dr. Frank’s has long been associated with the New York wine revolution. Its founder, Dr. Konstantin Frank, helped pioneer the introduction of the European vitis vinifera grapevines in the eastern United States. For his contributions in the American wine industry he was inducted into the Wine Spectator’s “Hall of Fame”. Now in its third generation, Dr. Frank’s continues as New York’s most award-winning winery.
